Days before Christmas, a South Australian woman has been left devastated after her car went up in flames early this morning.

More than 50 presents were inside the vehicle, destined to be delivered to domestic violence survivors.

Heidi Putric, from the Adelaide suburb of Grange, found her Toyota SUV extensively damaged today.

Police and firefighters were called to the scene at 12.15am.

“[It] really just broke me. I collapsed. I couldn’t believe it. I just couldn’t believe it,” Ms Putric said.

“Toys and things for families to get started and I just don’t know what to say. It took a lot of work and it’s really sad.”

Ms Putric’s neighbour, Josh Goldsworthy, discovered the fire in the carport after waking to strange noises just after midnight.

“I was running down to alert the neighbours to the fire and on the way back the car just exploded,” Mr Goldsworthy said.

South Australia Police is now investigating the fire, which is believed to have been deliberately lit.

“Luckily the fire did not spread and no one was injured,” SA Police said.

More than 50 Christmas presents were inside the vehicle, destined to be delivered to charity today.

“It’s really disheartening that there are people around that would do this to people,” Ms Putric said.
